It was a very relaxed tour. If you want something casual, with some information but not an overload of information and history, then this is the tour for you. He definitely knew his city and the streets very well. Good experience overall.

I travel a good bit, and almost always arrange for a private tour when I visit a place for the first time. Friends of mine recommended Zoltan's company based on their experience with another guide a few months ago. Zoltan was incredibly knowledgeable, insightful, flexible, and focused on making sure that my expectations for my tour were met. After meeting... More

You know when you visit a place for the first time and you have a friend that lives there you get to see the city that only the locals know? That is what you get with Zoltan. Don't get me wrong, you get to see all the "normal" sights of Budapest, but woven into your time are stories and experiences... More

We booked Rockhoppers on the basis of the reviews on Tripadvisor and the tour did not disappoint. This was a special trip to celebrate our big birthdays! We specifically requested Zoltan as we did have an inkling that he would be able to handle 7 sexagenarian women - and he definitely could. We benefited from a personalized tour with someone... More

My husband and I toured Budapest with Zoltan - I agree with many of the reviews here in saying that we were both educated and enlightened about Budapest past and present. We cannot say enough wonderful things about Zoltan - he is a character to be sure, with a warmth and sense of humor that made spending the day with... More

Zoltan's communist era tour brought the memento park to life and we were so glad that it was part of the tour. Zoltan explained the meaning behind the iconic statues and we watched the wonderful public information film on how to inform on your friends and family - an absolute gem and well worth the trip out there. Zoltan will... More

We learned so much about not just the troubled history of Hungry, but also the absurdities of the past and present political system. If you are looking for a conventional tour of historical sites, this is not the tour for you but if you want to learn the truth about Hungry past and present, Zoltan will make sure that you... More

Zoltan and his colleagues are incredible guides. We have traveled our whole lives, including to Hungary previously and not ever experienced a better deal. The price of their wonderful service and personal attention is well worth it. We learned more and saw more in a day than we imagined possible. They are proud of their country, very knowledgeable, great communicators,... More

My wife and I were in Budapest for several days, and spent half a day with Zoltan and his amazing Communist Era tour. This was certainly one of the highlights of our trip. Zoltan is so polite and knowledgeable about the history of Hungary and Budapest during the Communist times because he lived there during it and could provide a... More
